Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul and reprinted in Woman's
When the night thief creeps into town one night, Nedra is the only one who spies him lassoing the moon with his magic rope, plucking out each twinkling star, grabbing the edge of the night sky, and tucking them all into his black bag. But when Nedra tries to tell the townspeople that she knows what has happened, no one believes her except her grandfather. Taking his advice, she decides to find the night thief and the stolen night. With colorful illustrations by Patrick Soper,
The Night Thief tells a delightful story that is both mystery and fantasy.
Ms. Allen now resides in South Florida, where she is at work on a mainstream novel. She enjoys making stained-glass windows, shopping, and, of course, reading.
